Police drop investigation into alleged kidnapping of PM’s son

After two years Czech police have shelved an investigation centred on Andrej Babiš Jr., the son of the country’s prime minister, news site iRozhlas.cz said on Monday. The former said he had been abducted to Russian-occupied Crimea by his carer. However, detectives concluded that no crime had been committed, the state attorney’s office for Prague 1 said on its website.

Andrej Babiš Jr. told a news outlet in 2017 that he had been taken to Crimea to prevent him giving evidence in a fraud case. His father rejected that assertion, saying his son was mentally ill.
